I went to bed reading OS Nock's  Highland Railway. By 10:15 I was asleep,  I awoke 04:15 having successfully missed it all..

Had a curry and opened a lovely 2008 vintage champagne from the ďcave au garageĒ, then went to bed about 10.

My 2 year old woke at 11 (very unusually) and alternated between wanting me and mrs njee20 for 20 minutes. I then went to sleep on his floor as it was easier than standing to attention beside his cot. Woke up at 5 and slunk back to bed before getting up with him at 6. Rock... and... roll.

Never did enjoy NYE. Every rubbish pub suddenly rammed and charging £20 entry.

The  :censored: idiots round here obviously didn't know when midnight was as fireworks were going off sporadically from about 16.30 onwards. I lay reading in bed from 10.30ish until all hell broke loose outside at midnight, calmed the cat and then drifted off about Ĺ an hour later. Didn't touch a drop of alcohol all night so am quite awake this morning. The cat has found a new 2019 way of waking me up which comprises sitting on the pillow next to my head and then inserting his tail directly into my lughole - and he's extremely accurate!

Good morning, Mick, and welcome to 2019!

Same stuff here... local trail bike hoons couldn't decide what time it was either.

But they were probably going too fast to check the time doing wheelies on local streets

At least it drowned out the fireworks  :D

Happy New Year to everyone.
We went to the cinema on New Yearís Eve to watch Holmes & Watson which was quite funny and entertaining.
We then had a bite to eat at home and a few drinks (including a couple of glasses of bubbly which I always regret) before sloping off to bed at about 12.30.
A quiet night outside but there were some pretty big firework displays over Falmouth and The Roseland which we can see in the distance.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

I am not normally a fan of NYE but I am feeling happy because my 2 sons agreed to celebrate it with my girlfriend and I and all went well.

The fireworks here in Paris were not a patch on those in Sydney - your tax money was well spent George  :).

Question for Squiddy - was that stargazy pie I saw among your photos of traditional Japanese New Year food ?

Happy New Year to all.

Ha......you beat me to it with that question about Stargazy Pie. A Newlyn delicacy.

Unfortunately I have no idea what Stargazy Pie is - any clues?

Oh, then it was just vertically-orientated small fish, no pie involved (rare thing in Japan, is pie).

Common as muck at school, Squiddy. I seem to recall it was 3.142 when used in 2pieR and pieR squared

I can't speak for pi, but here are some other numbers I've had to put up with the past few days. It's been too hot to even attempt to go to the "shed"...and it was in the 30s again today (Wednesday).




Happy New Year to everyone.
May all your kits fit together perfectly and all your trains stay "on track".
